Stayed here two separate times, once in the Westinghouse Suite and once in the Penthouse Suite. The building itself is exactly what you should expect from a B&B. It's very large for a house, with stairways and extra rooms everywhere. It's quiet, too, except for the downstairs dining room at breakfast time. Not to say the place is deserted, since there are often people in the downstairs living room area, but if you want to keep to yourself you certainly can.
The rooms are the same as the rest of the house: large, well decorated, comfortable, and clean. The Penthouse is our favorite of the two, with a two person jacuzzi tub and remote-control fireplace in the bedroom, as well as a great view from the top of the inn.
The food at breakfast was great, with a good selection of cold foods (the yogurt is delicious!) and the option of the hot breakfast they're making for the day. We had scrambled eggs (with choices of spinach, feta, mushrooms, and cheddar) and toast, and then blueberry pancakes the next day.
The area around the Inn has a bunch of small and medium sized towns, as well as some standouts like the Norman Rockwell museum and the Lee Premium Outlets. Otherwise there's plenty of quaint New England shops to visit, great food (highly recommend Brava in Lenox for Tapas, and the Brickhouse Pub in Houstatonic for fried pickles). There's plenty to do, and we've only been to a fraction of the towns in our two visits.
My only regret was forgetting to raid the cookie jar during our last stay.
